Nuns Steal $500,000 From School To Party In Vegas

“An old check allegedly exposed decades of lies.

For nearly 28 years, Sister Mary Margaret Kreuper was the principal at St. James Catholic School in Torrance, Calif, a coastal suburb southwest of Los Angeles. Around the same time that Kreuper announced she was retiring earlier this year, a family at the school asked for a copy of an old check they had written to St. James. When staff members found the check, the Long Beach Press-Telegram reported, they realized it had not been deposited into St. James’s account but a different bank account.

That was among the first clues that would unravel a vast fraud that was allegedly conducted by Kreuper and Sister Lana Chang, another nun and longtime St. James’s teacher. School officials recently told parents the two nuns had stolen about $500,000 from the school. The school said the two women, reportedly best friends, used the money for trips and casino visits.”

  1. They didn't go after the kiddy fiddling priests, why would they go after some petty thieves?

  2. On the right corner those two could get paid (and something else that rhymes with that) in Vegas.

  3. As a student that went to St. James K-8th grade, I am truly disappointed in the sisters.

  4. Am SO sick of religious people pretending they are better than atheists! How many times have we heard about religious institutions and the people in them committing crimes vs an atheist doing so? I mean, we KNOW that Scientology is an huge extortion/blackmailing ring of actors and other rich people, yet they are allowed to still exist. We also know the roots of Mormonism, total BS. No religion invented in the US should count for tax exemptions, except for First Nations People and Old World religions. The so-called "legit" ones.

  5. This is what happens when we let privatization happen! They profit and don't do what they are supposed to do! They are cheapskates too. This theft via privatization is happening in all areas of this country. From FEMA to churches to the MIC. I think it's fair to say that churches have proven that they do NOT exist to help the poor anymore.

    The men of the US are just sucking us dry for their military "toys." I see the military as a bunch of fearful man-children who are brainwashed. They are the ones who destroyed this planet! Dumping WWII arms/munitions and radioactive waste into the oceans. Detonating nukes. Their planes and all the fuel. The damage they have done. It's sickening to learn what the US Gov and MIC have been doing since WWII. Just murdering innocent people and causing the world to hate us innocent citizens, (yes, most of us protested all these wars! but the Gov doesn't listen) even though it's clear that we have a rogue military and government!

  6. Never trust churches! A pastor stole a relatives house and flipped it for his profit! I was also pissed to learn that a pastor makes the same amount of money or MORE, than do people who run all the lab tests ordered by doctors! Doctors could not do their jobs without lab techs and their expertise, but they aren't paid well at all! This MUST change. My first job out of college started at $12.89/hr and I was responsible for all the HIV testing in my state! Did the tests and reported them out and had no benefits, just limited term employment with crappy pay! Now, minimum wage is way above what I was making not too long ago. They need to adjust those salaries b/c it's a female dominated field, but requires a very hard degree. It's sickens me that a pastor makes the same or MORE!

  7. I demand that those two paragons of blatant bullshittery be immediately inducted by acclamation into the Republican Party Hall of Fame (regardless of their actual political affiliation or lack of same) and placed jointly in charge of the Republican National Committee. They are NATURALS! They are uniquely suited for that job. They embody and exemplify all the important attributes of Republicans: chutzpah, depravity, dishonesty, larceny, duplicity, hypocrisy, treachery, mendacity, religiosity, irresponsibility, you name it. They are obviously intended by their own deity and that of the Republicans (Mammon) to be leaders of that organization. One must stand humbly, cap in hand and head bowed, before such perfect avatars of the American far-right ethos.

  8. The church doesn't want to press charges! They deserve to go to PRISON. Right before they go to hell.

  9. I am no more shocked to hear about Mother Theresa.

  10. I have to say…I totally condon this action…by stealing money from a religious school you are saving kids from being indoctrinated..maybe the school will have to close…that would be a win for the educational system. You have an actual chance to get something from bets in Vegas…but have 0% chance of getting anything from prayer or religion.

  11. Bet some male strippers had the most profitable days of their lives.

  12. These ladies were my teachers when I was in grade school. They are two of the best people I know!

  13. Nun of your business .lol haha

  14. I'm here for it…let em go! LOLOL

  15. I wonder what they would have done if they were two black male janitors…

  16. Sister Mary Margaret????? you cant make this shit up………………..class, class, SHUT UP!!!!

  17. I'm ashamed to admit that I knew Sister Mary Margaret for a very long time. I thought for the whole time that she was such a nice lady, but boy was I along with everyone else that knew and liked her were wrong! I just don't believe it who she really was on the inside! She betrayed us all!

  18. My buddy is a male stripper in Vegas. He “knows” those old bags and guarantees the bulk of that money wasn’t spent on gambling.
    They paid for quality smashin’. 😂😂😂

  19. Half million dollars would pay for a lot of school projects.

  20. And you're surprised, the priest n elders have been molesting children for thousands of years and still refuse to notify the sheep 🐑 and authorities.. SMH

  21. That ain't nothing, the churches have been doing this for over 2,000 years.

  22. It is impossible to make this shit up! LOL!

  23. Is it a coincidence that Michael Myers is the President of this school?🤔 I'm pissed about all those Acts of Contrition that I did as a child for calling my brother a jerk.🙄

  24. they both figured out together that religion is a scam

  25. The Catholic Church will always protect their own celergy and nuns from secular authorities. Even when it involves internal corruption. Of course, TYT turns centuries old methods of corruption, violence, and pedophilia into a joke.

  26. Apparently, the archdiocese is going to press charges after all, a lot different from the "silence and prayer" the church calls for when it comes to pedophile priests.

  27. 500.000 is the price for being a virgin t'ill you die.

  28. It would be great if they gave all that money to the NRA

  29. I'm not used to seeing Mark Thompson
    without ballcap…

  30. Why is this insane. Name a church that is not stealing from people. look at all these mega churches they are all theives


  32. The late Father Ted Crilly's American cousins.

  33. So if I work at a religious school I can steal money and they won't charge me for it like up to thousands of dollars shit I know what I'm going to get a job in and I'm not even going to work I'm just going to steal money. Just pray for my soul to get better one day there's no reason to arrest me or anything just allow me to take the money.

  34. Religious schools should not exist

  35. The plea for forgiveness is their sham!

  36. These events commit my stand in atheism ever more smh 2 loser bitches.
